is bringing somebody to help him. academy award winner, director, producer, steven spielberg. we're going to find out how the new issue of "time" relates to spielberg's latest film with abraham lincoln. up next, mike allen with the top stories in the "politico playbook." first, bill karins. what's it look like out there? >> it's all about sandy. it's interesting how this plays out over the next week. how about a billion-dollar weather disaster seven days before the election? that could happen. it is a potential with this storm as it possibly heads up into new england. it crossed cuba last night, still devastating weather from cuba into the bahamas during the day today. we have rain coming for south florida today. this will be a glancing blow, though, by florida standards and georgia and south carolina. notice it parallels the coastline all the way through sunday. the next chance for significant impacts would be up in new england as we go throughout monday into tuesday. we have the potential for a landfall from this system from maine all the way down to the delmarva. it's kind of undetermi

is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament

of chris stevens and three other americans, john. >> can i say, it seems to me that secretary clinton's statement is the first mature, effective thing the administration has said about this. and it strikes me as the act of someone who is taking responsibility, as she says, and doing her job. is the president ultimately responsible? yes, as president kennedy said, i'm the responsible officer of the military. but throwing her under the bus is wrong because to me she looks strong, rational. those are things we have not seen to describe the administration to the reaction of this story. >> and joe, part of the problem comes from the debate last week when vice president biden said we didn't know they asked for more security. when the officials had testified they asked for more security, so the white house came out with a clarification saying the white house didn't know about the request, that was a state department issue. they've been all over the place on this. >> they have. and i don't think this is going to affect the outcome of the election by any stretch of the imagination. americans a

the victim in all of this would be stewart stevens, the chief strategist from the beginning and several campaign officials have told us he's been fenced in. basically doing ads, not doing a lot of the grand strategy. that's been turned over to people like tagg romney and ed galespie with the campaign, brought in a couple months ago, lots of ties to the bush world. better at this stuff. >> it's great. who knows mitt romney better than the family? >> and it's great, you know, there doesn't have to be a loser here. we'll find out afterwards exactly what's happened to stewart and everybody else, but who knows mitt romney better than mitt and tagg and the family who know him and love him? we said, he's a great guy, great father, great man, and i actually -- >> better candidate. >> he's a much better candidate today. and i think him tacking a little bit to the middle, at least rhetorically, i think that helped him a lot. >> they thought he'd been mishandled up until a couple of weeks ago. how had this manifested itself up until that debate. is he really different out on the stump? >> yeah, i

to the building where ambassador chris stevens was hiding. that act directly conflicts with want description of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice on september 16th, five days after the incident took place. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> today congress is set to hold a hearing on the attack. it's expected to focus on potential security lapses at the compound and whether the administration originally down-played the link to terrorist elements. >> in "newsweek" this week we're talking about susan rice coming under fire. it seems, though, this story continues to evolve. the white house can't get the story str

. we feel it. chris stevens worked on our committee. he worked for dick lugar. i knew him. and all of us felted that loss. we want the facts. and we'll get the facts. but, you know, you don't make something like that -- look at sean smith's mother, complaining that romney is politicizing it. look at chris stevens's father. he says, don't make my son a political football. people should have the decency in this kind of situation to understand that some things are not politics, all the time, every minute. >> all right. >> senator kerry, it's always good to see you. thank you for coming. >> happy to be here. >> ready to go this morning. >> no, it's great. we appreciate you being here. i hope i didn't jar you with my humility. >> joe, you made my day. >> and my mother didn't scare you the other night? >> i love your mother. she's fabulous. and your dad. she's great. >> i would have liked to have been there. >> i learned about you spilling -- >> uh-oh. >> -- something on chinese -- >> spilled caviar on xaoping's crotch. it was in 1978. the historic opening. and what did 9-year-old mika b

suspects have been detained in connection with the killing of ambassador stevens. nbc news has not independently confirmed that reporting. >>> from "usa today," some of the country's biggest brands from subway to blue cross/blue shield are putting obesity in the spotlight. companies are increasingly using obese people in their ads to help change eating or exercise behavior like this nike spot released over the summer featuring a jogging 12-year-old boy from ohio. as part of the company's find your greatness campaign. >> best commercial of the year. >> is it really? >> really a great one. brilliant, brilliant. >> now from our parade of papers, "the dallas morning news," american airlines is canceling dozens of flights to repair faulty mountings that have caused several rows of seats to come loose while in midair. 48 boeing -- is that bad? >> that's not good. >> is that bad? 48 boeing 757ss have been grounded. to go to mechanics who actually screw in the bulbs. come on, guys. it's not ha hathat hard. >> this weekend's "parade" goes inside the vaccine movement. it's becoming a new

stevens and mitt romney got together and decided they weren't going to be really specific about the next four years, but the press hasn't been focusing as much on the white house's decision to really say next to nothing about what they're going to do over the next four years. who made that decision? when did they make that decision? when you write "game change," what's the key moment where they said, listen, we're not going to get really specific about the next four years? >> i think after the bungts deal fell apart, the grand bargain with john boehner and they decided to spend the last year drawing contrast with the other party. my criticism of the president in the debate and the reason i didn't give him a higher grade is because he wasn't specific and dealing with people in the president's campaign who criticized the relatively low grade for a guy who won, i said name what he said that was specific. in the debate, he said, i need another term to keep doing what i did in the first term. and a lot of americans think the first term was not perfect, to say the least. >> right. >> he's not

these cables on friday from darrell issa that ambassador stevens asked for more help, asked for more bodyguards, asked for more security. >> you know, he spoke to this last week in the debate. i'm sure it's going to be a topic tonight. but i think that he'll say, look. you know, this investigation is ongoing. and we are working it hard. we want to get to the bottom of what happened so that we can make sure it never happens again, but we can also bring those who killed four american people to justice. so i think that, you know, one of the things that i found interesting is darrell issa dumped out all of those documents. and it occurred to me that, you know, dumping that out the friday before a foreign policy debate was really all about politics. and the politics were set by mitt romney on the day of that tragedy when he came out and shot from the hip and before he had any facts blamed the united states. and blamed the president. and you know, he set the tone for his party. he said, okay, go ahead and play politics with this. as a result, those documents that were released had important informati

. ♪ do do >> here now is a clip from the soon to be released steven spielberg abraham lincoln movie. take a look at this bad boy. ♪ >> pretty good seats, huh? i got these tickets just like a half hour ago, half price. oh, man, there's my friend cyrus. cyrus, hey, cyrus, oh no. oh, i'm so sorry, mr. president. oh, this must be like the worst thing that's ever happened to you in a theater balcony. >> my goodness, i didn't know that was going to be part of it. all right, this is for the bell and according to a new study the threat of the fiscal cliff is already wiped out 1 million jobs across america with companies now postponing major purposes -- purchases and also letting positions go unfulfilled. the report from the national association of manufacturers predicts if the tax increase and sequestration went into effect, americans could lose 6 million more jobs through 2014. sending unemployment racing toward 12%. and this story out of seattle, boeing is encouraging its suppliers to outsource work to mexico. and it's even encouraging companies who attend a workshop in chicago to learn more

there. they dragged themselves back into this game. this was the equalizer. steven a. smith, 2-2. both teams had chances to win it in the second half. i have to say, watching this game is so emotional from a liverpool potential, it's like eating popeye's. luis suarez thought he won it in the final seconds. it was incorrectly called off-sides. the only winner on this day was karma. >> incorrectly called? >> yeah, he was actually not off-sides. this gentleman, is such a loathsome twit that even the referees line up against him. >> he does look like anne hathaway. >> he has far more than the regulation number of teeth. another big game this weekend, chelsea versus manchester united. it was a bare-knuckle fight between those two heavyweights that you both know so well. willie. >> yes. >> manchester united took a 2-0 lead in this one thanks to their dutch-scorie ining maestro, robn persie. a goal even barnicle could love for the twinkle toes of happy feet juan mata. look at this one, talented little spaniard. corner. >> wow! >> they dragged themselves back into the game. games like this, th
